Fitel S153 Fusion Splicer

FitelS153 Fiber Fusion Splicer

Active XYZ Clad Alignment Fusion Splicer

The hand-held FITEL S153 incorporates an improved heating design that cuts splice-to-heat time by 40 percent. The unit’s T-shaped body design is also 40 percent lighter, weighing only 4.85 pounds including battery. Ideal for fast field use with superb battery life. In addition, fiber magnification power is 608X, marking the industry’s most powerful rating for a core alignment splicer.

The S153 uses an ‘Active clad alignment’ function, which achieves lower splicing loss with less user skills required compared to a conventional Fixed V-groove Clad Alignment Fusion Splicer.

This machine is designed to endure harsh operating conditions by improving shock / impact resistance with rubber pads embedded on 4 corners of the splicer body. This fusion splicer also achieves water resistance compliant to IPX2 and dust resistance compliant to IP5X.

Another key feature of the S153 is the significantly reduced operation time. Protection sleeve shrink time is mere 25 seconds. Power saving
technology used in these machines allows up to 200 splicing cycles (splicing and heating) with 2 built in rechargeable batteries.

By combining improved speed, precision, durability and portability in one body, the S153 ushers in entirely new possibilities for fusion splicing applications.
